COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Celebrating the first year of Freetail’s existence, One explores the uncharted dark-side of Belgian-style witbier. Based on an old homebrew by Assistant Brewer John Lee and brewery friend Reimy Roberts, the One uses 4 types of wheat (malted, raw, terrified and roasted) and is spiced with healthy doses of orange peel and coriander and fermented with 100 lbs of native Texas Brush honey from Fein’s Honey in Llano, TX. A delightful Black Wit that, to our knowledge, has never been attempted before commercially.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - FEB 17, 2010
Tap. A muddy color beer with almost no head(it looks like it got scooped up at the edge of a muddy lake). An aroma of wheat, & citrus as is the taste with a off putting taste at the end. The only beer I haven’t like from Freetail.

Mora2000 (5856) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JAN 5, 2010
Bottle provided by thirdeye11. Pours a nice looking dark brown with a tannish head. Very low carbonation. Aroma is Belgian yeast with some toasted malt and some caramel malt. Maybe a little citrus fruit, but it is very well hidden if it is there. The flavor is similar to the aroma with a little citrus, some caramel and roasted malts as well as alcohol. Very drinkable.
